Class II ceramic dielectrics: types, performance and applications

source: Capacitor Faks blog Class II dielectrics are made of ferroelectric materials. The most commonly used materials are alkaline earth titanates. Most Class II dielectrics are based on barium titanate (BaTiO3). These dielectrics exhibit less stability but higher volumetric efficiency than Class I types, and are very commonly used in electronic circuits for coupling, decoupling, […]

IPDs Reduce BOMs, Save Space & Improve Performance

source: EPS news Initially developed to replace discrete capacitors, resistors and inductors, integrated passive devices (IPDs) are having a kind of resurgence thanks to the development of ever-shrinking electronic devices that need to pack more electronics components into smaller spaces. These newer devices are far from simple capacitor and resistor arrays.
